Start The New Year With A Clean & Clear Pore Perfecting Morning Routine – The First Step Towards Clearer Skin
Confidence is EVERYTHING. If you don’t feel good about the way that you look on the outside, then you don’t feel good on the inside. I’m a firm believer that you should never judge someone by their appearance, and I like to think that people don’t judge me based on my appearance either. But at the end of the day, I am constantly insecure because of my acne. I used to even catch myself covering up my face with my hands while I spoke to people – without even noticing what I was doing!
If you aren’t comfortable in your own skin, then you tend to hide yourself – like I used to do with my hands – and you never give people a chance to get to know the real you. In middle school, I always felt left out, and didn’t get invited to a whole lot of activities. Eventually it became clear that I was the one that was excluding myself, because I was embarrassed of my acne and it was time for a change!
I have always been prone to breakouts, and I had tried every cover-up and make-up product at the pharmacy to try and cover up my acne. Finally, I realized that I needed to attack the problem head on, rather than forking over boatloads of cash on expensive make-up to try and hide it. After doing my research I decided that Clean & Clear was the product for me. I became an avid “Clean & Clear” user, and have come to swear by the facial products.
After spending some time on the easy-to-use Clean & Clear website and learning about facial routines, I ordered three Pore Perfecting products so that I could begin my new confident and fresh-faced journey. Don’t get overwhelmed by the thought of a “routine,” it truly is so quick and simple to follow! First, I use a Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser to wash away the sweat and make-up from the day. It’s just as easy as it sounds – you squeeze the foaming wash on to your hand and wash your face with it, then dab away with a towel. Every good facial routine requires a pore cleanser!
The second part of my routine consists of toning with the Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Astringent. This part of my facial routine is crucial – the toner for blackheads gets behind your pores and cleans under the surface, which prevents more breakouts from occurring. The Clean & Clear astringent deep cleans under your pores, where a lot of facial cleaners don’t always reach.
The third and final step of my routine is the Clean & Clear Essentials Dual Action Moisturizer. When you clean your face on a regular basis and use mediated cleansers, your skin can tend to dry out a bit – and that is where the face moisturizer comes in! Not only is it medicated and proven to help clear up acne, but it also leaves your face feeling smooth and soft.
No matter what your insecurities are, there is no magical over-night fix. But, by beginning a Clean & Clear morning skincare routine, I have already taken huge steps towards a clearer face and my confidence is at an all time high. I already have seen major improvements in my social life – because the way you feel on the inside is what you convey on the outside – and I feel amazing! I am finally comfortable enough in my skin to let people see the real me.
Life is too short to sit on the sidelines because of your insecurities. Determine what it is in your life that is holding you back – and take the necessary steps to change it.
